Juliette Aristides: The Master Figurative Artist

Juliette Aristides

She is a gifted, passionate, intellectually stimulating artist and writer who seeks to understand and convey the human spirit through art. Ms. Aristides has spent the past ten years acquiring a rigorous education on the principles of classical realism. She began her studies in 1988 under Myron Barnstone in Design Systems. 

She continued to study drawing and painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, then at The Atelier in Minneapolis in the tradition of Richard Lack. This work was followed two years of instruction at the National Academy in New York with Jacob Collins, where she received the Wilder Prize for Drawing and the Albert Hallgarten Traveling Scholarship. While also receiving instruction from Carlos Madrid, Juliette spent a year working with a small group of students at Jacob Collins' studio prior to becoming a founding member of the Water Street Studio in Brooklyn, New York.
